HKBU receives HK$10 million donations in support of Project SEED

17 December 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to the global economy. Foreseeing the challenges that graduating students will encounter during the current economic downturn, HKBU rolled out Project SEED (Student Engagement, Enrichment, and Development) in April 2020. The Project aims to enhance students’ competencies by collaborating with the HKBU community to provide various career, mentorship and internship opportunities.

Project SEED has been strongly supported by friends, staff and alumni of HKBU. HK$10 million in unsolicited donations and pledges have been received. The University expressed its deepest gratitude to all the supporters, whose generosity has made Project SEED possible. Please click here to view the list of donors of this meaningful initiative.

The Project covers four core areas, namely SEED Mentorship, SEED Jobs, SEED Internship and SEED Incubator. The HKBU SEED Fund has also been established to provide emergency relief for students with financial difficulties and to support the University to launch worthy student projects. In addition, an online platform BUHub has been newly created to connect students, alumni, employers, mentors and staff, so as to provide support for graduates in their career development.
